Top Activities in Rehoboth Beach

See all 20 things to do in Rehoboth Beach


Rehoboth Beach Attractions

Discover Rehoboth Beach, a resort city set along the Delaware Beaches also called the "Nation's Summer Capital." The city's soft sands and cool Atlantic waters make it a popular vacation destination for visitors of all ages through the whole year. Visit for the irresistible beaches, or spend time relaxing with family in Rehoboth's scenic parks. Foodies can indulge in delicious oysters, fresh seafood, and nostalgic boardwalk fare, and a booming craft beer scene welcomes brew lovers with discerning palates.

Areas & Neighborhoods in Rehoboth Beach

The beautiful beaches that line Rehoboth Beach are the city's main attraction, but the area is full of local gems that offer a break from the water. Step away from the shore and find a family-friendly community full of coastal charm.


Rehoboth Beach's long waterfront Boardwalk is lined with eclectic shops and restaurants that give the seaside stretch unique character. From snack shops selling sweet and savory treats to bars like the Dogfish Head Brewpub where you can sip on craft beers and homemade sodas, the Boardwalk has something for the whole family. The area acts as a backdrop for the festivals and events held all year round, and it's the perfect place for a relaxing stroll or bike ride after a day on the beach.

Grove Park

Surrounded by large trees, Grove Park is a shady spot where families can go to relax. The park encourages exercise and activity with a Tot Lot play area for kids and circuit work out equipment for adults, and hosts community runs and walks throughout the year.

Dewey Beach

Dewey Beach is Rehoboth's younger neighbor, a pristine stretch of coast where surfers and windsurfers flock for great waves. Try out engaging lessons in kayaking, jet skiing, or stand-up paddleboarding during your stay or take advantage of a buzzing nightlife scene before returning to tranquil Rehoboth.

What to See in Rehoboth Beach

Parks like the Stockley Street Park, from which you can access peaceful Silver Lake, are a lush alternative to Rehoboth's bustling beaches. Lake Gerar Park features grassy spots and walking paths along the northern banks of Lake Gerar, perfect for a picnic or stroll. During the summer, catch live open-air performances at the Rehoboth Beach Bandstand, where local acts have been playing since 1963. The Clear Space Theater Company also puts on professional plays and musicals throughout the year at the Rehoboth Theatre of the Arts.

Sightseeing in Rehoboth Beach

As a favorite vacation spot throughout the year, Rehoboth Beach is full of fun things to do. Beach activities are a must, with plenty of opportunities to swim, surf, or just soak in the sun, and the city hosts the annual Rehoboth Beach Sandcastle Contest where teams create amazing sculptures and structures out of sand. Rehoboth Beach also puts on the yearly Sea Witch Festival around Halloween, which features local food, entertainment, and a thrilling costume parade and contest. The city celebrates the arts with events like the Rehoboth Beach Independent Film Festival and Rehoboth Beach Jazz Festival. For entertainment away from the water, head to Funland, a nostalgic amusement park that opened in 1961. The park features rides for all ages and an old-fashioned midway arcade that brings retro charm to the boardwalk and is the perfect place to make memories.
